One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. The first volume was released in 1997. It follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy and his crew, who explore the ocean in search of the world’s ultimate treasure known as “One Piece” in order to become the next Pirate King.
The manga has broken publishing records, including highest initial print run of any book in Japan and the first book to sell over three million copies in Oricon history. The series has over 345 million volumes in circulation worldwide, making it the best-selling manga series in history.
Needless to say, people have been very curious about when the adventure is going to end. Just recently Oda was interviewed and asked when and how he was planning on finishing the story. He won’t be slowing down anytime soon. It is rumoured to come to an epic conclusion in 10-15 years.
